Turnitin

Turnitin is a tool used by PSU faculty to detects instances of plagiarism within submitted assignments. Faculties are encouraged to make use of this tool to promote academic integrity in their courses because it helps them to detect plagiarized papers and view the similarities percentage to outside content in the web or other published resources. Alongside, our Moodle training series, E-Learning coordinators provide training on how to create Moodle Turnitin assignments as well as how to generate similarity reports. While Turnitin can be used as a punitive measure to catch students who are copying the work of others without acknowledgement, it is also valuable as a feedback mechanism to help students learn what constitutes plagiarism and to help them to develop their academic writing skills.
